    Shirts Our Business was established in 1975 and was located at 2503 W. Devon Avenue in Chicago. At this location we served both retail and wholesale customers. For the retail customer we specialized in heat transfer applications of the popular TV, music and movie icons. We also customized T-shirts with names and numbers so Grandparents could tell their Grandchildren apart. For our Wholesale customers we would manufacture custom designs for any need in quantities of the same product.

    By 1979 we out grew this space and moved to larger quarters at 2646 W. Devon Avenue. We continued with our retail Customer as we expanded more into the wholesale end of the business. Because of production needs we purchased our first automatic printing press that would do up to 6 colors. Wow, we had arrived!

    In 1986 we made our final move to our present location at 4949 N. Western Avenue. With this move and the expanded space, we discontinued our retail store front, and concentrated totally on wholesale. This is where we are today and over the years we have invested constantly in the modernization of our production and quality. Computers graphics have replaced the artist and the drawing board. The designs keep getting more challenging and difficult to achieve. We like the challenge!

    Today we have around 30 employees, four of whom are still working together from our first location on Devon! Our employees are a close group consisting of staff hired through friends and relatives of employees, some of which have worked here for over 15 years. We all work hard to earn your business and put out a quality product.

    We have been providing commercial clients in the USA with professional quality Silk-screening and embroidery for over 35 years! Give us a try we won't disappoint you!
